Bao Choy, a producer with public broadcaster RTHK, was found guilty on two counts relating to searching a database of vehicle licence plates. Her conviction comes at a time of deepening concerns over press freedom in the international business hub as Beijing stamps out dissent in the wake of huge democracy protests.
